Why Implant & Periodontic Specialists is Right for You
Whether you’re looking to get dental implants or having problems with your gums, Implant Periodontic & Specialists offers the highest standards of patient care backed by a wealth of expertise and experience.
The practice’s dental offices in Bellevue and Issaquah create a welcoming atmosphere for patients and provide highly-skilled dental services performed in a friendly manner.
As periodontic experts, they offer high-caliber care in prevention, detection and treatment of gum diseases, which, if left to their own devices, can affect the jaw bone and even spread to other parts of the body, including the brain.
The first stage of periodontitis manifests itself as gingivitis, when bacteria infect the gums. An early diagnosis by Implant Periodontic & Specialists can avoid the problem escalating to the level where surgery is necessary – usually, minimally-invasive scaling and root planing is all that is needed.
In more severe cases of periodontitis, when tissue or bone surrounding the teeth has been seriously damaged, several surgical procedures are available, including bone grafts and soft-tissue grafts.
The dental offices of Bellevue and Issaquah Implant and Periodontic Specialists are also authorities in the field of dental implants, which provide patients with a superior alternative to conventional bridges or dentures – quality implants that replace the roots of teeth to provide a secure foundation for removable or permanent artificial teeth that look and feel like your own.
They offer cutting-edge dental implant technology and methods of treatment to give you back your smile and self-confidence. In their hands, your implant – being fused with bone – can last a lifetime with proper care, and will actually promote bone growth.
Other benefits of choosing Implant & Periodontic Specialists include high-tech diagnostics and treatments, various levels of sedation for apprehensive patients, and a range of convenient ways to pay your bill.
Sedation Dentistry You Can Trust
Eight in ten patients of Bellevue and Issaquah Implant & Periodontic Specialists opt for sedation dentistry, which helps nervous people to remain comfortable during treatment.
Intravenous (IV) sedation is used as a general anesthetic but can also induce various degrees of consciousness. Because the sedative is administered into a vein, it gets to work quickly, and the levels can be easily adjusted.
Oral sedation – minimal or moderate sedation through simply taking a pill – is ideal for people who fear needles (belonephobia). An oral sedative costs less than intravenous sedation and has fewer side effects.
Inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide –laughing gas) can be an alternative to oral conscious sedation. The gas helps you to relax during the procedure but then wears off quickly.
Deep sedation and general anesthesia render the patient almost or entirely unconscious. You remain asleep until the effects wear off or are reversed with medication.
LANAP and VELscope Technology
Implant & Periodontic Specialists is skilled in the use of LANAP (laser-assisted new attachment procedure), which can provide a permanent solution in cases of severe and persistent gum disease. Recovery time after this pain-free surgical laser procedure is almost immediate.
With VELscope oral evaluation, a handheld scope is used to detect tissue irregularities, including indications of cancer. The device is used in conjunction with a conventional head and neck examination. It emits a blue light that causes the soft tissue of the mouth to fluoresce. Abnormal tissue will show Implant & Periodontic Specialists different patterns from healthy tissue.
Convenient Ways to Pay For Your Dental Implants or Perio Treatment
If you don’t have thousands of dollars tucked away for a rainy day, there are a variety of ways to pay your bill, including health insurance, dental insurance, dental plans, payment plans and healthcare credit cards.
The Bellevue and Issaquah Implant & Periodontic Specialists practice of Dr. Neal Raval offers a range of affordable payment plans and accepts most major insurances, in line with its commitment to provide the highest standards of professional care for its clients.
